Conventional scans

Most conventional scans are performed in the department.
The most common scans include bone scintigraphy to investigate rheumatological and infectious diseases or cancer, cardiac perfusion imaging, either to investigate heart disease or to investigate heart rhythm or left ventricular function, lung scans, neuroendocrine tumour scans (somatostatin receptors, MIBG), brain scans in Parkinson’s disease, thyroid scans and renal scans.

Positron emission topography (PET)

Several kinds of PET scans can be performed, depending on the tracer used. The most common scan, which is carried out every day, is of course the 18F-FDG (glucose derivative) PET scan.

This examination is prescribed in cancer cases, as well as for infectious/inflammatory or neurological conditions.
